Conquest System Clarifications

Just to clarify a few more things about the Conquest System:

  • Players who did not finish their Conquest cap this week can resume next week. This means, for example, characters you have who have never earned Conquest this week can, in 3 weeks, progress through 3 weeks worth of the conquest earning 3 items.
  • In order to gain loot for the Weekly Cache (the chest in Mugambala and Hook Point), you must complete your Conquest cap for this week.
  • The Weekly Cache will reward you loot based upon the highest rating achieved in a rated 2v2, 3v3 or Rated Battleground the previous week. This means you could reach Duelist rank, then drop down to Rival and still receive Duelist quality loot.
  • Until the Mythic raid opens, all base item level items are capped at 360 within Mythic+ and Rated PvP. This means that Challenger and above players cannot gain items higher than item level 360 until then.
  • All Dread Gladiator gear – from the weekly Conquest, from the Weekly Cache, from end of match rewards – can have their item level boosted to the rating associated with your current rank using a Battleborn Sigil. Battleborn Sigil’s can be rewarded to you through PvP actiivites, as well as through a repeatable turn-in quest requiring 10 Quartermaster Coins through Xander Silberman at Mugambala and Marshal Gabriel at the salt and Shanty Inn within Hook Point. Quartermaster's Coin can be earned if you lose a bonus roll in PvP.

    Wondering if these fire mage buffs will make the spec viable

    Bli$$ard seems to be just stupid and blind:

    - Balance druid completely ignored (it needs at least a 15% damage increase buff)
    - Elemental shaman ignored as well (same needs than balance)
    - Demonology warlock a 5% buf (LOL. Just LOL. A grandma hits harder with her purse than this spec does. It needs AT LEAST a 25-30% damage increase buff)

    - Retry paladin damage still not nerfed
    - Enhancement shaman damage still not nerfed
    - Affliction warlock damage still not nerfed
    - Survival & MM hunter damage still not nerfed
    - Discipline priests needs a LOT more nerfs. They are healers and hit harder than most dps. Dude, you can be dps or healer, but not a fucking unkillable god
    - Rogues still need more nerfs (both talents and damage)
    - Demon Hunters needs to have the Glide thing nerfed and it MUST have a CD. It is as stupid as when rogues had an eternal sprint (WTF were you thinking Bli$$)
    - Retry paladin shouldn't be able to hit when the shield is on. If no damage can reach the paladin, then no damage can go out of the shield.
    - Wind shear CD must be increased for Enhancement shamans and insta healing should be removed from the game (same than Paladin/feral ones)
    - Healing thing from mage shields (arcane ones I thing) still not nerfed


    GG bli$$ard, the older the game is, the more unbalanced it becomes.


    PS: Rogues, hunters, warriors, mages, and non hybrid but pure DPS classes SHOULDN'T be able to heal themselves. Please stop this surreal and senseless thing. Only druids, shamans, paladins and monks (and maybe a hunter with an spirit beast) should be able to as dps classes.

    PS2: WHAT ARE YOU FUCKING WAITING FOR LIMITING AND ECUALIZING THE NUMBER OF HEALERS PER BAND IN EACH BGS, AND WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU WAITING FOR BANING PREMADES ON RANDOM BGS?? AND WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU WAITING FOR NOT ALLOWING RUSSIANS TO PLAY WITH EUROPE?

    PS3: When is this MELEE CANCER gonna stop? It's been like this since Legion (or Draenor, it's been so long I can't remember). What are you waiting for to limit the burst damage, ammount of approaching skills and interrupts, slows, etc. melees have?

    These 5% dmg buffs are so lazy its hilarious
  1. Teph's Avatar
    Nah, after doing heaps of research they came to the conclusion, that 5% is the perfect number for each spec. They probably spent 5min on each spec.

    Why the feral nerf. I can’t even understand blizzard anymore
  1. Khozmo's Avatar
    Im main Shaman since i started to play World of Warcraft in The Burning Crusade. I enjoy playing Shaman but im feeling always forgotten. Elemental is one of the specs i enjoy so much... I hope they improve us in the near future.
    I feel a lot of impotence trying to make a good dps and keep close to other classes. Im not gonna quit playing Shaman because i love it so much but damn...

    So I take it Blizzard has officially decided that Balance are simply supposed to be bottom tier this expansion. Also the nerfs / buffs going out are so lazy it's incredible, this expansion really is going down the drain atm.

    Balance is mid tier in the logs? I’m not trying to be mean.

    Absolutely NOT!

    The ability to self-heal in bursts, and a low-cooldown ranged interrupt, have always been Enhance's niche perks compared to other melee specs. (As well as being able to do at least some ranged damage, which BfA thankfully improved with 20-yard Rockbiter, Flametongue, and Frostbrand)

    I'm also against Enhance nerf, because since as far back as BC, the vast majority of time Enhance damage is worthless compared to other melee specs in both PvE and PvP, with only rare exceptions in specific tiers of content (because of good gear itemization). It's nice to have good damage for once.
  1. Stormstrîke's Avatar
    Ha, with the buffs to fire, shadow and the other 2 lock specs, that means elemental and balance will be completely at the bottom. Why did I even level those two chars, I'm cursed. Should have gone with mage and hunter.

    They don't even play their fucking game.

    I'm always laughing about the fact that when someone says something against those cry babies who whine because their specc isnt at the top, they directly assume every contra argument plays an op class/specc...

    So... Blizzard reworked MM hunter, nerfed it to the ground and now left it as it is... full of bugs and bad to play as in PvP.

    Why did they even rework it if they wanted to abandon it anyway?

    Balance buff when? Absolute garbage for PvP and left to the dirt in PvE.
